Dharmasthala Shaurya Emergency Response Teams Now Active in 53 Taluk: Click For Contact Details

Shree Dharmasthala Shaurya Emergency Response Teams trained by Sri Kshetra Dharmasthala Rural Development Project (SKDRDP) have joined hands to undertake over 2,300 different rescue and relief operations. The idea of Shaurya, as emergency teams that could lend a helping hand locally during any calamity as well as to render other social services, was conceived by Dharmasthala Pattadhikari D. Veerendra Heggade. While teams across the state have nearly 8,640 trained members so far, the SKDRDP plans to raise the numbers to at least 20,000 in the coming days.

The members work with NDRF, SDRF, fire and emergency services, police and local people during these emergencies. Members of the team rushed to the rescue of those affected by flood and landslide in Kodagu, Belagavi, Bagalakote, Bhatkal, Byndoor, Sullia, Kadaba and other areas that were severely hit by torrential rains. Volunteers also helped agencies in moving affected people to relief centres, taking injured persons to hospitals, removing tree logs, restoring road connectivity, burying dead cattle, cleaning water-logged houses, building foot bridges and other emergency response works. Some of the major rescue and relief operations carried out this monsoon included clearing of vented dams and bridges (347 instances), removing trees fallen on roads (684), cleaning damaged/ water-logged houses (261), restoration of roads (218) and rescue of snakes (183), among others.

Helplines have been made operational by the project for relief and rescue operations in different districts.
